Williams argues that the Gothic is poetic, has two sets of conventions (Male and Female), and that the Gothic is part of the Romantic tradition. To prove her thesis Williams relies heavily on feminism and gender-based criticism with a sizeable amount of Freudian psychology and a dash of structuralism. This may sound intimidating, but her prose is clear and engrossing for anyone with an interest in the Gothic or gender studies.
The only prerequisite to comprehension is a basic class in literary theory. And, should a student in a literary theory class ask for a book that shows theory in action (always a problem with theory classes) this would make an accessible example.
